Welcome to my new home...
|I put the flowers out right away, the front door needs a little updating, but it'll do for now.|
Come on in!
I wish you could stick a "recently moved in" sign on the lawn.
So the UPS guy doesn't think he needs to call CPS.
A little cleaning, some expert mashing of craft supplies into the craft closet and the living room is tidy.
|the blonde children blend in well|
The dining room is getting there. It's the one place we've been stashing art and miscellaneous stuff as we get settled. But it's nice to have the table and buffet tidy.

The actual entryway is still empty. We're starting the "real" decorating here (different from the moving-in-and-getting-used-to-the-spaces decorating that is happening all over our house). I've been collecting ideas for a little while. The loose theme is honeysuckle and grey. A little girly, but I decided that I needed one little space of pretty in this house boys.
The starting list of changes:
Wall paint - grey
Paint antique vanity (and unearth the mirror) - honeysuckle
Hang art - LOTS!
Find a rug - something to bridge the reddish tones of the floor and the pink of my accents
New light fixture - maybe hack something from the Restore?
Thanks for touring with me :)
